Doty

Susan Doty has been recognized with membership in The University of Texas System Academy of Distinguished Teachers, Dr. Michael Tidwell, president of The University of Texas at Tyler, announced.

Created to recognize exceptional educators at the UT System's eight academic institutions, the Academy serves as a System-level advocacy group dedicated to enhancing teaching, fostering innovation in the classroom and promoting interdisciplinary perspectives on education.

The selection process to be admitted into this distinguished organization is competitive. Nominees for the Academy must have previously received a Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award and have tenure or equivalent rank (senior lecturer or above) for contingent faculty to be considered. Members of the Academy are nominated by a campus-based selection process and are then submitted by the institution's president or provost for consideration.

"We pride ourself on having exemplary faculty, and Susan Doty's reputation on campus is outstanding. She has proven herself to be a great instructor and leader. She is truly deserving of this award," Tidwell said.

Doty is a senior lecturer in economics and the founding director to The University of Texas at Tyler Center for Economic Education and Financial Literacy. She earned the UT System Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award in 2015.

A founding fellow and the president-elect of The University of Texas at Tyler Academy of Distinguished Teachers, Doty serves on the executive committee for the National Association of Economic Educators and is currently its president-elect. Concurrently, Doty serves as a board member for both the Council for Economic Education in New York and the Texas Council on Economic Education in Houston.

In addition to serving on national and statewide associations, Doty is a member of the finances affinity group for the UT System Quantum Leap on Student Success.
